E100: Cursed Movies

E100: Cursed Movies

March 9, 2020

The idea of the cursed film has been around in some shape or form since the dawn of the medium. Some of the earliest examples of cursed movies include The Wizard of Oz, The Conqueror, and Rebel Without a Cause. In the 1970's and 80's, the popularity of the cursed movie urban legend exploded due to the release of horror films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and Poltergeist. Typical "cursed films" typically have a myriad of production issues, and many of the cast and crew are later suffer from serious injuries or expected and untimely deaths. In this episode, we take a look at a number of allegedly cursed movies including Poltergeist, The Omen, The Passion of the Christ, The Conqueror, The Exorcist, Atuk, and The Crow.

E99: The Ant Hill Kids

E99: The Ant Hill Kids

March 2, 2020

The Ant Hill Kids are perhaps Canada's most famous cult, operating out of Quebec and Ontario throughout the late 1970's and 80's. Led by the charismatic Roch Theriault, the commune mostly kept to themselves, funding their alternative lifestyle by selling baked goods. Theriault claimed that he was a messenger of God, and warned his followers that the end times were approaching. He claimed that the Ant Hill Kids would ascend to heaven if they followed his command, but that the road to absolution would be marked by pain and intense challenges. What followed was nearly a decade of twisted violence, isolation, and manipulation that led to the deaths of two people, forever altering dozens of lives in the process. In this week's episode, we discuss the history of Roch Theriault and the Ant Hill Kids.
